. it is totally an obama district. it is just a freak accident that this republican was elected and i think he is fantacizing that this will give him a chance to be re-elected. i think that probably is a fantasy but that explains the one republican vote in the obama district. eric: if you read this article in "the wall street journal" it talks about mr. cowell from louisiana, the republican who voted for the house bill, and he says there is indication that he was looking for a $1.2 billion loan to be excused, of loans directed at hurricane katrina and he said he would vote for the bill if that was excused. this wheeling and dealing, $1.2 billion to buy one vote. this scares me. i don't want my taxpayer money to go there. >> right. well, it's a fair point. i think a lot of these congressmen are wren slaving their importance by claiming to have won all these deals. i think the overarching point -- i agree with your cynicism, if it were true, i think the truth of the matter is that congressmen know americans don't want national healthcare. they don't want their taxes to go up. they don't want the

. barack obama promised that if we spent this massive stimulus plan, unemployment would not go above 8%. now it is at 10.2%. most frightening is the broader definition, underemployment. so many people with harvard mba's flipping burgers. we knew from the beginning that the stimulus would not work. i argued about this that monday morning with bob. this is simply a bailout for financially troubled blue states. it allowed liberal bureaucrats to spend money. never a good idea. it went to jobs that were temporary. this was not the way to create jobs. they are taking well from one part of the economy and transferring it to another. you can never expect progressive job growth when you do that. this money went to states doing pork-barrel projects. it went to pay down debt on programs like medicaid. juliet: bob, what do you say? supporters say that we are expecting too much, too soon. >> republicans are always so excited when these people are out of work. i never saw such glee in the republicans when we went over 10%. these are real people with real families that are really struggling. i know y

is the president at the time will look back, despite what president obama has said about not looking back. we look back, because as a nation we want some precedent, we want to know what happened before. and if we don't make a record, if we don't determine to our best efforts what exactly happened, what transpired, what was right, what worked, what didn't work, then we will have missed this critically important opportunity on the part of our nation. finally, i would say, i think which legal office, who would be entrusted to set policy and to figure out the legal issues? daniel i would say the office of professional responsibilities is not equipped to do this job. that office looks at the ethical obligations of lawyers. the office of legal counsel has historically played the time-honored role of dealing with these very complex, thorny legal issues, and in most of history they have got their right. unfortunately during the bush administration, they miss the boat. but looking back through history, some of our most prestigious lawyers, finest lawyers have come from that office both democrats and republ
